berneart76: guess It's time to take a break from cover letters and job applications and clean up the 6 inches of snow from last night Feb 26, 2015 10:54:23 GMT -9
berneart76: putting in The Hobbit: An Unexpected journey and Desolation of Smaug and working on ramp supports and PDF layouts Feb 22, 2015 11:06:32 GMT -9
cowboyleland: I searched for Napoleonic Russian figures here but the old links from don't work. Does anyone have any leads? Just curious at this point. Feb 16, 2015 19:51:05 GMT -9
cowboyleland: More than a day without a post. I thought the site was broken! Feb 10, 2015 20:12:14 GMT -9
wyvern: Thanks Squirmy; that new archery video link's very interesting. Feb 9, 2015 5:29:28 GMT -9
squirmydad: An interesting response to Lars here http://www.skeptic.com/insight/pulling-a-fast-one-video-critique-of-a-viral-speed-archery-video/ Feb 8, 2015 8:56:04 GMT -9
mesper: EDIT - ups, sorry this link to Lars Anderson was already mentioned by Feb 2, 2015 7:58:21 GMT -9
mesper: , - A new level of archery: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEG-ly9tQGk Feb 2, 2015 7:54:01 GMT -9 *
wyvern: : Thanks for those video links, the second one especially. It covers something I'd wondered about too, the power of the bow not being employed properly in speed shooting. Feb 2, 2015 3:35:29 GMT -9
mproteau: Spent the first hour just letting them be silly to get it out of their system. They have lego figures for their characters. One kid brought a lego frog thinking I'd keep it off the table. Nope! It even played a (small) role in the first fight! Jan 31, 2015 11:20:26 GMT -9
mproteau: Finally started a 5th edition game (Lost Mines of Phandelver) with my kids today! We're all learning together. I insisted they recruit friends to play, so there's four of them ranging from 10 to 14. Jan 31, 2015 11:19:17 GMT -9
mahotsukai: He also has this to say about speed shooting. Something Lars Anderson is guilty of. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr_1z3GwxQk Jan 30, 2015 18:08:22 GMT -9 *
mahotsukai: The side the arrow is placed is dependent on what release technique is used. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NrNIbWAWlw Jan 30, 2015 18:07:35 GMT -9
mproteau: I <3 my robocutter! I realized I hadn't done up a lot of the Okumarts minis yet. I printed and cut (and mostly edged!) Darkfast Dungeons sets 1 - 3 (bonus figures and all!) and I still have time to watch some Game of Thrones tonight! Jan 30, 2015 16:46:22 GMT -9
eran: When I do combat archery in the SCA, I use a hip quiver - when running around in armor its a lot easier to draw and fire that way than a shoulder quiver. I've seen folks holding sheaves of arrows, but with combat blunts its rather difficult. Jan 28, 2015 5:11:02 GMT -9
wyvern: Also interesting the impracticality of the open quiver in active combat situations. Ancient artworks often show archers holding a bundle of arrows. Maybe minis should too? Jan 27, 2015 16:28:25 GMT -9
cowboyleland: Having been taught "the proper way" to shoot, I had always assumed that the artists in old pictures got it wrong. It sure seems like they were actually drawing what they saw. Jan 27, 2015 12:26:10 GMT -9
okumarts: http://art.thewalters.org/detail/81322/archery-contest/ Jan 26, 2015 9:59:26 GMT -9
okumarts: http://historicalhoney.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Battle_of_crecy_froissart.jpg Jan 26, 2015 9:56:03 GMT -9
okumarts: The further back the illustration, the more likely it is thumb-sided. That could be because as the bow was replaced ballistically it became a target practice tool and less of a weapon. As a weapon the thumb seems more flexible in a combat situation. Jan 26, 2015 9:55:59 GMT -9
